Here's what west of highway 275 looks like due to the floods. Water has gone down within the past few days, but still a lot to be cleared. #NebraskaFlood #nebraskaflooding #NebraskaFlood2019 https://t.co/ej36Bio2Fm

University of Nebraska leaders are working together to finalize additional supports for all Huskers, Mavericks, Lopers and the University of Nebraska Medical Center community. Details on those programs will be announced and added to the online resources list.
Details about university-led volunteer opportunities directed at flood recovery efforts will also be announced in the coming days. It is recommended that students, faculty and staff eager to lend assistance give to various support organizations or donate blood.
The University Bookstore in the Nebraska Union, which is part of the Follett Corporation, has partnered with the American Red Cross of Nebraska and Southwest Iowa Region to collect monetary donations for flood recovery. It is also serving as a drop site for supplies needed by impacted communities. Learn more by visiting the bookstore.
